Owner description: Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

This huge cave is well lit and self guiding using mp3 and headphones is provided. Steps are not too strenuous. The bush walk (700 m) signposted at the cave exit is also very interesting.

We visited Mammoth Cave in November 2014. (the ticket included Lake Cave and Jewel Cave) This one was a self guided tour. You get a device and a headset, so you listen to the recordings about the cave. The audio is very informative. The entry to the cave is at the ground level and good for old people who have... More

Do yourself a favour and visit all three of the caves (Jewel, Lake and Mammoth). They are all amazing to look at and words can't explain how beautiful they all are.

Dear Davisy 1980, Thanks for your feedback. You're spot on - the three caves are completely different. I'm glad you enjoyed them. Safe travels! More

The nice thing about it was that we could walk round at our own pace listening to headsets and stopping when we needed to , after all there are 170 steps. The information about the caves was...

We were greeted by the friendly Karen, staff of MC. She gave very good tips about moving around the cave. The self-guided tour was easy going. Cave was a little dark so for the elderly and young, they might have to move around slowly. The 170 steps at the mouth of the cave back to the entry point was a... More

Loved the freedom to go at our own pace with the use of head phones to go through the cave and explain the wonder surrounding us.

We decided to visit the cave on the way back to Perth and had a lot of fun walking through listening to the informative audio. Great that we could go at our own pace too. We got some great photos and a bit of exercise climbing the steps out of the cave. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic about... More
